Name: Beatrice Fairchild
appearance/weight: She's about average height for a Caucasian woman, with brown hair, brown eyes, and a slim runner's build. Her skin is pale, with a slight ruddy tone that becomes more prevalent with exertion. At the airshow, she was wearing a pair of gray-green cargo pants with a simple white tank top. She has a black leather thong necklace with a dog tag-shaped pendant with the marine eagle-and-orb that reads "My brother is a Marine." Beatrice
personality: Quiet. Observant. Beatrice isn't much of a talker, but when she does, she chooses her words carefully. She has an almost sullen look to her gaze that makes one feel as though she's quietly judging them, although whenever it's pointed out, Bea claims that couldn't be further from the truth. When the need for it arises, she's good at delegating tasks to those best suited to them, and keeping others on task and motivated (thus her success at her occupation!). She's very big on understanding situations and choosing her battles appropriately. More than once she's said "this isn't the hill I want to die on," when asked why she didn't push a point others thought important.
former employment: Project Management
hobbies: Knitting; Reading; Running
history: Bea grew up the youngest of two motherless children, a little sister to an over-protective older brother. Despite her withdrawn nature during school, few people ever picked on her after the first couple of retaliations by her big brother. As such, she led a relatively peaceful young life. Shortly after college, her brother enlisted in the Marines. He graduated Boot Camp with awards under his belt, his platoon taking four out of the six trophies available, including final drill. In the interest of spending more time with him, whenever he returned home to visit, she would accompany him on his runs. It wasn't long before she was running when he was away, as well, honing her body so she wouldn't slow him down when they ran together. She began to appreciate it as a sport, and started to train for and compete in marathons.
She dithered about in college before finally getting a communications degree, and bounced from job to job for the first couple of years before settling in at a software company as a Project Manager, finding the organization to be her niche.
Equipment: Half a ball of sock yarn, along with a pair of half-finished stockinette socks on a 60" size 0 Chiagoo Red Lace circular (stainless steel needles with a red-coated steel cord); ziploc of homemade trail mix
